Tabitha Brown is well known for dishing out a mean Vegan recipe, keeping a smile on her face and a motivational word or two. Following the recent news of her cooking series ‘It’s CompliPlated’ being removed from the Food Network’s prime time slot, she’s letting folks know that she’s staying true to her authentic self!
According to People magazine, ‘CompliPlated’ has been moved from Thursdays at 9 p.m. to Tuesdays at 1 p.m. on the Food Network.
In response to the news Tabitha took to social media to say, “I know I’ve said this so many times before, but for whatever reason, people just don’t seem to believe me, okay. There is not a company, there is not a network, there is not a person, place, or thing that is going to change who I am.”
“I’m not going to change,” she continued. “I’m not going to shift a little bit for your audience. I’m not going to talk a little bit different for your comfort. I’m not going to change.”
“If it ain’t enough for you, then you’re not for me. And if I bring it to your attention that — ‘Wait, I don’t like how this feels; I feel like you’re trying to change me or erase my personality or my culture-and you get upset by that instead of hearing me from my heart, I also don’t want to be in business with you,” she continued.
Tabitha wrapped up in saying, “With that being said, my new show It’s CompliPlated has been moved from Thursdays at 9 p.m. to Tuesdays at 1 p.m. on Food Network.”
Sources confirm that It’s CompliPlated aired only two episodes on Thursdays at 9 p.m. before ultimately being moved to a daytime slot.
In an obtained statement to People a spokesperson for the Food Network states, Moving low-rating shows around the schedule to find an audience is fairly common practice. Thursday nights at 9 p.m. is a competitive slot, and the thought is that Tabitha’s audience might find her better in a daytime slot.”
The spokesperson continue, “Tabitha’s energy and unique point of view are the reasons that we will continue to support It’s CompliPlated. We’ve moved the series to our daytime cooking block where diehard cooking fans, especially those who are looking for vegan dishes, can enjoy it.”
